Rachel (quiet, uptight, strait-laced) is meeting her long forgotten friend Ruth (brash, assertive, energetic), who after finding Rachel on social media has, for the past 6 months been rather persistent in arranging a catch up with her childhood "best bud".
Rachel is nervous, having no real memories of this woman part from her name. Once she gets to Ruth flat, it's clear they have grown into two totally different individuals. However Ruth remembers everything, revealing their deeply rooted past and Rachel's forgotten passion for Animal Rights.
Maybe 'Rachel' should of stayed in.
